Picked up a WE G18C from a friend mainly for parts, but after seeing that all it needed was a spring guide, outer and inner barrel, and hop up, I've decided to make it into a fun little project. The "parkerized" finish that was painted on the slide was heavily scratched from the previous owner putting it into a vice grip to remove the broken barrels, so I sanded and polished it into a nice silver color. I plan on a few cheap upgrades to get it running again, then possibly selling it. It seems the spring guide and barrels from my TM G17 don''t fit properly in it, so I'll have to buy a whole new set, which apparently, aren't common. If anybody has those few parts for this, I'll buy/trade them off of you.
Finding a decent outer barrel will be hard. Guarder's outer barrel is very heavy and the slide movement will become very "sticky". Also, a replacement hop up unit will be expensive. Aip is 40 bucks, and the cheapest I could find for a tm was 30.
Btw, where did you find it and how much was it? Just curious.
